Ahead of tomorrow’s first trailer for J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Universal have released a behind-the-scenes video which features something altogether more exciting than dinosaurs and Chris Pratt running away from an erupting volcano; the return of Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm, he of “oooh, ahh, that’s how it always starts, but then later there’s running and, and screaming” fame.
Featuring talking heads from producer Colin Trevorrow, Chris Pratt, and the infectiously enthusiastic Bryce Dallas Howard, as well as plenty of glimpses at new footage, the most intriguing aspect is Bayona’s comments about making Fallen Kingdom a more intense experience for the dino-loving audience. Wouldn’t it be nice to be frightened by dinosaurs, like it was 1993 and a thunderstorm all-over-again?
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful franchises in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is set for release on June 22nd, 2018 and sees J.A. Bayona directing a cast that includes franchise veterans Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum alongside newcomers Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger), Rafe Spall (Black Mirror), Justice Smith (The Get Down), Ted Levine (Silence of the Lambs), James Cromwell (The Young Pope), Daniella Pineda (The Detour) and Geraldine Chaplin (A Monster Calls).
